KTravel: The Taste of Spain (Photojournal)

I have been home from Spain a total of 4 days. I am trying to get back into the swing of things but my life has been a little non-stop since hitting the tarmac.

I can’t wait to share my journey with you over the next few posts. The foodie in me has to start with one of the best dining experiences I have ever had abroad or in the states.

I am growing and am no longer petty so I am sharing the restaurant names and locations… for the ones I have.  Continue reading

KTravel: Souvenir Ideas… other than Shot Glasses

If you haven’t noticed, I am on a traveling kick recently. I often think of my life in terms of what trip I am planning, what trip I am on, or what trip I have just gotten back from. I am definitely not bragging as I owe it all to my amazing travel agent @dynamitetravel (a fellow Gator lezzie) and payment plans.

I have been trying to rack my brain to think of my new “adult” go-to souvenir. When I was a college student, any time I would go somewhere I would come home with a shot glass. Be it another country, another state, or even another city, I had a shot glass to commemorate the trip. It was cool, it was fun…. and it was cheap. Most of the time you can grab a $5 one while sitting in the airport. Unfortunately, over the years of moving, and partying (don’t judge me), my shot glass collection did not stand the test of time.

So then I moved on to postcards in my mid-twenties. Thanks to Martha Stewart I was on a scrapbooking kick so they were perfect. I could use them as a accent piece for a photo I shot, or cut them up to make a trip collage. I still have some postcards in my scrapbooking box that I would love to do something with. Why haven’t I? Blame Facebook and Instagram for that.

And while I am all about keychains and t-shirts as souvenir gifts, I am not really keen on them for myself. Coffee mugs are just something more for me to clean and beanie babies had their heyday in the 90s. So what are my favorite options now? I have three. Continue reading

Let Them Eat Cake! Mug Cake Recipe — Guest post by the amazing Chef @creole26

Hey ya’ll!

If you are anything like me, there are times when your cravings hit, and won’t leave you alone.  I have been going about my merry little business, when a sudden, STRONG urge for chocolate hits. I want it, I need it, I gotta have it.  If you’re anything like me, you try to limit the amount of sweets laying around the house because you WILL eat every last crumb.
So whats a boi to do? I pull out some basic ingredients from the pantry and fridge and make some magic in my trusty pirate coffee mug! (it says ARRRRRGGH! on it. No judgement, please.)

KTravel: The Taste of Haiti (Photojournal)

Where do I begin? I had an amazing experience last week traveling with Fleur de Vie to the island of Haiti. I will be posting more about the organization in a subsequent post but let me first say, this was a life-affirming visit. The work of this organization is nothing short of amazing.

I can’t wait to share my journey with you over the next few posts. The foodie in me has to start with one of the best dining experiences I have ever had abroad or in the states.

I am trying to decide if I am going to share the name with you (y’all know I am petty). For now, I will call it the Little Gem. Continue reading
